    Hello @Etienne Van Niekerk ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Please try to run VS/VS Installer as administrator, and check if the same issue disappears.

    Make sure that you have full permissions on your machine. If your machine is included in group policy or is blocked(maybe C drive) by your administrator, please contact your administrator.

    Besides, did you install/delete VS on this machine before? Did you modify something for example path…?

    If running VS/VS installer as administrator still doesn’t work, please try to download a new bootstrapper file from here: Downloads, put it into a new clean folder, run it as administrator.

    Feel free to let us know the result.
